Hey all. I found this amazing quarter in an uncirculated bank roll that I bought on eBay. Was hoping you all could look at it and see if anyone has seen this error type before. I haven't been able to find an example of another one online. It seems to be a punch through of the reverse of the coin from the torch flame and stars. If this is a new type of error, how the heck do I get it graded if the error isn't known? Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Posting the back of the coin just to remind you guys what it looks like

Here is the beginning of the error. Kinda looks like a part of a star maybe slightly coming through?

By the lips you can clearly see a star

Here is the top of the flame from the torch

A second star by the neck of Washington

This last picture; I always get it confused by this being either a Double Die or a Machine Doubling/Machine Die Damage?!

Thank you for taking your time and looking at this coin for me! Excited to hear from you all!

to CCF. I agree it is a nice die clash. Also,it seems that errors and varieties on Bicentennial coin brings a bit more value than non Bicentennials.

Seeing is always better than a description. Words get in the way, the eyes can see what is going on better that way.
